Perry Allen Albright, 49, was arrested at 7:26 p.m. that evening on four harassment charges, two menacing charges and two charges of first degree attempted sexual abuse, charges that stem from incidents dating from Monday, Feb. 22, to Thursday, April 15, according to the various arrest warrants.
Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark said Albright has been causing problems for a while, and that it’s likely that more women will report situations with the man, especially with the publication of his photograph.
The warrants state that on Feb. 22, Albright was at the Trigg County Justice Center and was menacing and aggressive toward License Examiner Gale Pruett and a 17-year-old female permit applicant, repeatedly asked the 17-year-old for her phone number and put his arm around her, and when she got away from him he followed her down the hall, grabbing her arm and shoulder.
Albright was also loud and abusive toward Pruett, snatched paperwork from her and pushed the table against her, said the warrant.
Another warrant states that in March, Albright was in Patty Sue’s Restaurant and touched a female waitress’s leg and slid his hand up her thigh, and generally yelled and created a disturbance at the restaurant.
The warrant also indicates that Albright went to the restaurant often and watched the waitress often, and another warrant states that he did something similar to another waitress at the restaurant in April.
In the month of April, Albright confronted two different teenaged female employees at the Hilltop Kash Market and harassed one of them on more than one occasion, the warrant indicated.
On Wednesday, April 7, Albright harassed a 16-year-old girl at Hancock’s Neighborhood Market, told her she was pretty and asked her out multiple times, despite her telling him she wasn’t interested, and almost touched her face with his finger, a warrant stated.
Albright went to the same church as another 16-year-old girl, and harassed her repeatedly at her place of work on Thursday, April 8, when he told her she was pretty and later poked her in the stomach with a rake to get her attention, and again on Monday, April 12, when he passed her in line at the concession stand at the Trigg County Recreation Complex and then backed up to look at her, according to the warrant.
On April 15, Albright was at the Trigg County Recreation Complex and approached the Trigg County girls’ softball coach about six times at the fence, asking her if she was single and offering her something at the concessions stand, which she refused, the warrant stated.
Later, he bought her a Sprite and handed it to her over the fence, but became upset and yelled at her later when he saw her drinking dugout water instead of the Sprite, the warrant said. He didn’t approach her anymore, but he continued to yell at her while she was on the softball field, according to the warrant.
